BATHING: The bath in the East, because of the heat and the duet, is constantly necessary for the preservation of health, and to prevent Bkindiseases. The bathing of the newly born is mentioned in Ezek. xvi, 4; bathing as part of the toilet in Ruth iii, 3; Ih Sam. xii, 20; Ezek. xxiii, 40, and elsewhere. As the Law attached great. religious value to the purity of the body, it prescribed bathing and ablutions for cases in which it was apparently impaired (Bee DEFILEMENT AND PURIFICATION, CEREMONIAL). Ablution was required when one approached the deity (cf. Gen.. xxxv, 2; Exod. xix, 10; Lev. xvi, 4, for the high priest on the Day of .Atonement). Bathing in " living" (i.e., running) water was regarded as most effective in every respect (Exod. ii, 5; II Kings v, 10; Lev. xv, 13). More accessible and convenient were the baths arranged in the houses. To a wellfurniBhed house belonged a courtyard, in which was: a bath according to II Sam. xi, 2, an open basin. Susannah (verges 15 eqq.) bathes in a hedged garden and uses oil and some kind of soap; the Hebrew women aged bran in the bath, or to dIy themselves, (Mishnah Pestthim ii, 7). The feet, being protected by sandals only, were exposed to dust and dirt, and no attentive host omitted to give to his. guests water for their feet before he entertained them (Gen. xviii, 4; xix, 2; I Sam. xxv, 41; cf. Luke vii, 44; John xiii, I 10). The washing of hands before meals was customary for obvious. reasons; but it is not expressly attested before New Testament time, and then as a religious enactinent which the Pharisees rigidly observed (.Matt. xv, 2; Luke xi, 38); so in general with reference to washings and bathingB the punctilious were at that time more exacting. The efficacy of warm springs wag recognized at a very early period (cf. Gen. xxxvi, 24, R. V., and the name Hammath, Josh. xix, 35; xxi, 32). They were found near Tiberias (JoeephuB, War, II, xd, 6; Ant.,
XVIII, ii, 3; Life, avi; Puny, v, 15), Gadara, the capital of Persea, and Callirrho8, east of the Dead Sea (Josephus, War, I, xxxiii, 5; Pliny, v, 16). Public baths are mentioned in Josephus, Ant., X1X, vii, 5, but their existence in Palestine can not be proved before the Grew Roman time.

Abuses connects with the public baths in early Christian times called forth protests from many of the heathen and led some of the emperors to attempt restrictive precautions. The Church Fathers also raised their voices, but it is noteworthy that though therewsepubliccensure (e.g., of women, particularly of virgins who were immodest in the bath), there was no formal, ecclesiastical prohibition of the public baths. The use of the bath was remitted during public calamities, penance, Lent, and for the first wok after baptism. From the time of Constantine it was usual to build baths near the basilicas, partly for the use of the clergy, and partly for other ecclesiastical purposes.
Brsr.roossray: For J3ebr. custom consult DB, i, 257 258. On the Christian. DCA, i, 182 183: the article "Baden" in %L, i, 1843 48, covers both subjects.
BATH gOL: Literally" daughter of the voice,"
an expression which signifies in itself nothing
more than a call or echo, for which it is also
used. When the term is applied to a divine
manifestation, i6 implies that it was audible to the
human hearing without a personal theophauy.
In the Old Testament the notion is found in Dan.
iv, 28 (A. V. 31), " a voice fell from heaven." In
the New Testament similar ideas are the heavenly
voice at the baptism of Jesus (Matt. iii, 17; Mark
i, 11; Luke iii, 22), at his transfiguration (Matt.
xvii, 5; Mark ix, 7; Luke ix, 35), before his passion
(John xii, 28), and the voices from heaven heard
by Paul and Peter (Acts ix, 4; cf. axii, 7 and xxvi,
14; x, 13, 15). A voice from the sanctuary is
mentioned by Josephus (Ant., XIII, x, 3; cf. Bab.
Sotah 33a; Jeras. Sotah 24b), and was called bath kol
by the rabbis, who were of opinion that such heav
enly voices were heard during all the time of Israel's
history, even in their own time. According to
Bab. .Sotah 48b; Yomah 9a, this "voice" was the
only divine means of revelation after the extinction
of prophecy. They narrate legendary stories of
such divine voices which settled religious difficulties.
Different from the bath kol proper is the idea that
natural sounds or words heard by accident
are significant heavenly voices. This superstition
was not uncommon, as Jerus. Shabbat 8c shows.
Rabbi Joshua was of the opinion that such things
must not influence any legal decision (Bab.
Paba Meti'a 59b; Berakot 51b). Rabbi Johanan
lays down as general rule that that which was
heard in the city must be the voice of a man, in the
desert that of a woman, and that either s twofold
"Yea" or twofold "Nay" is heard (Bab. lkfegillah
32a). (G. DAL ".)
